Choosing The Right Eye Shape For You
Did you know that choosing the right false eyelash for your eye shape is as important as choosing the correct hair style for your face shape. Our Signature mink lashes can enhance your natural eye beauty, or even change the shape of your eyes completely. False eyelashes will brighten your eyes and create a larger and more awake eye look.
Let’s have a look at eye shapes and get you started on finding the perfect false eyelashes suited for you.
This eye shape is considered universal and people with almond shaped eyes will capture some serious glam with a variety of lashes. Characterizations of this shape is, having equal proportions with a visible lid when the eyes are open. For some extra brilliance, this eye shape pairs well with our Full Volume Lashes. This will create a look of increased depth and intensity. Alternatively, for a bit of added flair, lashes that are longer on the ends make a fabulous impression as well.

Refined timeless beauty is often how this eye shape is described. With eyes that are set deeper into the skull this creates the illusion of a more prominent brow bone. At times this tends to over shadow your eyes. To bring those beautiful peepers forward, creating depth, use a medium to longer volume false eyelash. Go wild with fullness but hold back on the overly dramatic lengths. These stunning Signature mink lashes will give you that red carpet look.

Down Turned Eyes
Down turned eye shapes have a slight drop on the outer corners. Here is some pretty exciting news – this eye shape is the greatest for creating the cat eye eyeliner look – how lucky are you. A winged out, full false eyelash style will give you an upwards illusion by lifting the corner of your eye. This will create a symmetry and add some extra sparkle to those lovely eyes of yours. This eye shape can also pull off extreme lengths. For this look, we recommend our flawless Lilly Lash giving you that full volume sparkle.

Eyes like these should always be the main event. You are among the lucky ones, who naturally have ample lid space to play up your eyeshadows. Sometimes this shape is also referred to as protruding. To conceal your protruding lids from possibly overpowering your look we recommend a shorter to medium volume mink lash to promote a receding eye look. This eye shape plays well with our light volume and a cluster free mink lashes to make up for the lack in lavish lengths.

With little to no effort, this eye-shape commands attention and captivates those around you. Close-set eyes are spaced less than one eyeball width apart generally. Medium to full volume false lashes with a tapered flare will draw attention towards the outer corners of your eyes. This in turn creates the illusion that your eyes are a little further from each other. Try our magnificent Mid Volume Mink Lashes for some ultra-glam.

The simplicity of this eye-shape is breathtaking. Monolid eyes have very little, to no crease in the eye lid. This eye-shape flirts nicely with a short or medium volume and high curl lash. This type of lash will boost definition and accentuate that subtle drama in your eyes. An additional eye-shape trait found with monolid eyes, is an up-turned eye. To complement this beautiful feature you can add a round mink false eyelash to soften the daring dimension of your eyes without overwhelming your stunning features. Our ATHENA lash is the perfect fit for those with the monolid eye shape.

Your eye shape is bold, dynamic and naturally sultry. Hooded eyes have a crease with a prominent brow bone so the eyelid is not clearly visible when the eye is open. The wrong lashes can pull hooded eyes down and make them look small. Lashes in medium to long lengths will draw focus up towards your brown bone and length in the middle will open those beauties up in a snap. We highly recommend our Violet Mink Lashes as they provide a great length while complimenting your eye with its flare affect.
Celebrities with Hooded Eyes: Blake Lively, Selma Blair, Iman Chanel, Hayden Panettiere, Frieda Pinto
Round eyes are similar to the almond shape eye with a couple of noted differences. Round eyes tend to be larger and rounder in appearance. Those with round eyes have the ability to pull off the ultimate doe-look, which many of us can only dream about. Playing with the outer corners with a medium to extra-long length false eyelash will maximize the width of your eyes. Our Full Volume Chanel minkies are the perfect match
